Trick-or-treating set for Danville, Junction City and Perryville

Though Halloween festivities will look a bit different this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic trick-or-treating will still be happening in Danville, Junction City, and Perryville, and guidelines and advice are in place to ensure a safe experience. See below for when each community is doing trick-or-treating and some guidelines to follow to help control the spread of COVID-19.

 

Danville — 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 31. According to a press release from the City of Danville, the annual downtown trick-or-treat event, usually held on the 200-400 blocks of W. Main Street, will not be happening this year. However, trick-or-treating will still happen in neighborhoods.

Junction City — 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 31

Perryville — 5:30 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31

 

According to a press release from the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, those who choose to give candy to trick-or-treaters should put individually wrapped candy outside on the porch, driveway, or on a table, and everyone trick-or-treating should maintain at least six feet of social distancing with anyone not in one’s household and wear a face-covering — Halloween masks don’t count as adequate protection.

It is advised for people to clean their hands before and after touching wrapped candy, that trick-or-treating be done in family groups and not large groups, that families should trick-or-treat within their own neighborhoods and not outside their neighborhoods and that people use hand sanitizer often, especially prior to eating and after contacting frequently-touched surfaces.

Some guidelines regarding Halloween festivities other than trick-or-treating include avoiding the following high-risk activities: traditional trick-or-treating during which treats are handed out door-to-door, trunk-or-treat events during which treats are handed out from trunks of cars lined up in large parking lots, costume parties, haunted houses where people may be crowded and screaming, hayrides or tractor rides, fall festivals outside your community if your community has a spread of COVID-19 and any event with large crowds.
